3. My Reddit post about DataAnalyst got 45k views in 24hrs, what did I learn?

One of favourite subreddits is r/dataisbeautiful - I find it amazing how talented some people are, being able to gather data from all over the place, structure it, and visualise it in a way that it tells a story so simple, yet so captivating.

Building in public is scary, it doesn't (probably) get easier - it is however a huge opportunity to learn something new, improve your work, and grow.

With that in mind, I decided to publicly share my journey of building Data Analyst on Reddit. As most of you probably know, you never know which way the comments section is gonna go, so I was understandably nervous.

The feedback however was overwhelmingly positive, and the post racked up over 45k views.

I'm incredibly thankful for all those who interacted with the post and shared their thoughts - I read through and replied to all the comments, and decided to do a wrap up of the experience.
